First opened in 1962, Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) is a pioneering arts centre and charity, with the mission to make art an important part of people’s lives. 

Set in the magnificent surroundings of Cannon Hill Park, just two miles south of the city centre, MAC specialises in contemporary work, providing arts opportunities for all. 

We are proud to offer a busy programme of theatre, independent cinema, visual arts exhibitions, creative courses, and special events. MAC is a national leader in developing work with children, young people, and families. 

At the heart of MAC is a focus on sustainability, accessibility, and inclusion. We work extensively to support international and local artists, and develop programmes for and with the local community. 

We are an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, which means funding thanks to taxpayers plays a huge part in supporting our work. With thanks to our supporters and funders including players of People’s Postcode Lottery through the Postcode Lottery Trust, and Birmingham City Council.
